Coronavirus Statement

"These past months have been trying times. COVID-19 has, it seems, put all life on hold, but this is not the end. In keeping with the Delbarton spirit of Succisa Virescit– cut down, grow back stronger–  the Delbarton Science Fair has opted to forge ahead with a digital fair!

However, this has not been without its setbacks. Many research groups were unable to complete their projects due to these extenuating circumstances. We ask you to be understanding of that fact.

We hope that this fair can be a beacon that brings together the Delbarton and New Jersey community during these challenging times. As we face COVID-19 together, let us turn to God, to each other, and to science!" 

       -William Li, Delbarton‘21
